TWELVE President Proposes Federal Aid for Private Health Plans (OoeHMWd from Pi«t 1) often a serious burden. Major, long-term Illness can become e financial catastrophe for a normal American family." Me praised existing private hos- curance plans, and said progress pitalization and medical care in- made in that field "Indicates that these voluntary organizations can reach many more people and provide better and broader benefits." Elsenhower said the government the insurance business to furnish need not and should not go into the protection which private and nonprofit organization now provide. "But the government," the President added, "can and should work with them to study and devise better insurance protection to meet the public seed. "I recommend*the establishment of a limited federal re-insurance service to encourage private and nonprofit health insurance organization to offer broader health protection to more families. This service would re-insure the special additional risks involved in such broader protection. It can be launched with a capital fund of 25 million dollars provided by the government, to be retired from reinsurance fees." Similar to Bank System Although Eisenhower did not go Into detail on what he meant by "re-insurance," he apparently had in mind something along the general idea of the system by which the government insures bank depositors against loss. The private health plans would pay a fee for the Insurance against major losses, and these fees, it was contemplated would in time repay the ic diseases. "Twenty-two thousand lose their sight each year. Diabetes annually adds 10,000 to its roll of sufferers. Two million of our fellow citizens now handicapped by physical disabilities could be, but are not, rehabilitated to lead full and productive lives. Budget Message Thursday "Ten million among our people will at sometime In Iheir lives be hospitalized with mental illness." The President called for a "progressive expansion" of the program for rehabilitation of the disabled. He said his budget message, which will go to Congress Thurs. day, will reflect this objective. The goal in the fiscal year starting July 1 Is to restore 70,000 disabled persons to productive lives—an increase of 10,000 over the number rehabilitated In 1953, the President said. He said the Koal for fiscal 195« Is 10,000 rehabilitated persons. In that year, he added, the slates should begin to contribute from their own funds to the cost of rehabilitating these additional persons. Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton (13:30 quotations) Mar 3348 3349 3343 3346 25 million dollars set up to start the system. Most existing private plans cover only a specified number of days of treatment at a specified maximum cost. Presumably, more benefits might be allowed if the financing was more assured. The House Commerce Committee has been holding hearings on a bill which would set up a program along the lines Eisenhower suggested-. In his message today, Eisen- however said there has been rapid progress in the United States toward better health. "Yet, much remains to be done," he declared. "Approximately 224,000 of our people died of cancer last year. This ineans that cancer will claim the 3'ves of 25 million of our 160 million people unless the present cancer mortality rate is lowered.

Present law requires 90 per cent support for basic crops. "Contradictory" Ellender, with reference to the proposal for flexible supports, said in an interview: "To me the new proposals seem contradictory. While basic crops like cotton, wheat and corn are put under a sliding scale of supports from 79 to 90 per ceot, tobacco and some others continue about the same." Under Eisenhower's proposals, supports would be relatively high In times of scarcity, to encourage production, and low in times of surplus, to discourage It. "It seems to me that there Is no need to raise supports when there Is a scarcity," Ellender said. "The market normally would eliminate need for any supports." Ellender said he favors applying planting and marketing controls at a lower level of supply than at present "so we don't pile up a surplus to push down prices." Eisenhower cited the present government Investment of some five billion dollars'. In surpluses as evidence that something is wrong with the present war-born system. Eisenhower's farm program was among the first of his specific rec- unmendatlons to come under direct :ire In the legislative process.

The Red press contended more han five million Germans had signed a petition demanding all- German representation at some point in the deliberations. _. West German Chancellor Konrad I Three MissCO Men Barber Admits Greenlease Story Was a Hoax LAS VEGAS, Nev. (/P)—The barber who claimed he saw a man take a suitcase from a police car at the time of the Greenleaw kidnaping In St. Louis admitted to the FBI Saturday that his story was a hoax. Frank Beninato, held here on a worthless check charge, now claims he was appearing in a Tampa, Fla., night club that night, and only told the story to get even with his wife and a former St. Louis police officer, Louis Shoulders, who were, in Beninato's words, "mean to me," the FBI reported. Shoulders and Patrolman Elmer Dolan, who arrested kldnap-mur- derer Carl Austin Hall, have been indicted for perjury by a federal grand jury in connection with their testimony concerning their handling of two suitcases in which Hall said he carried the ransom money, of which more than $300,000 is still missing. Adenauer ignored such tactics. The Western Powers already have assured him he would be kept constantly advised of any decisions affecting his legally elected government. The West remses to recognize the handpicked Soviet zone regime which has insisted It must have equal representation with more populous West Germany in any all- German regime. The Kremlin pledged itself yesterday to work at Berlin for the "earliest possible settlement" of the long - delayed Austrian independence treaty. The Soviet news agency Tass said the promise was made in a note .delivered to Austria's embassy In Moscow.

That may not be easy, since some elements of his party are not going to like being "liberalized" and xvill fight it openly. Some GOP lawmakers think Eisenhower has gone "New Deal," as they put It. To meet expected resistance from these sources, the President s reported to have told his lieutenants he will use his White House forum to appeal directly to the country whenever he thinks this Is necessary.
